Option #2: Project Management Maturity Model – Mini-Case Study
Learning curve theory represents the application of experience to improved project success. This idea of improvement is embodied in the Project Management Maturity Model (PMMM), a growing concern of project organizations. We need to optimize our project efforts, and a maturity model is an effective tool to this end.
For this assignment, assume you are in the role of a project leader helping a fictitious organization move to the next level of the PMMM. Use the pre-defined scenario below as a basis of your thoughts. Use creative freedom to create additional details to this scenario:
ADC is a Colorado-based logistics company that engages in consulting projects to share their expertise with organizations in need of logistic solutions. They have completed three sequential projects for customers. Their success is leading to additional opportunities, and they expect to be dealing with managing two or more projects at the same time. They need to clearly understand their current level of project maturity and the steps necessary to reach the next level.
Specify the PMMM level of the organization today. Explain your rationale for arriving at that conclusion. Specify the next level of the PMMM that is the one above the current PMMM level of the organization. Create and provide an action plan that the management team of the organization can use to move from the existing PMMM level to the next PMMM level.
Your action plan should be 2-to-3-pages, well written, and in conformity with CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements for style and writing expectations. Include a title and a reference page that includes at least two outside references (not including your textbook) to support your thinking.
